Have you ever been to Paradise ?
We did, it had a name – Andaman and Nicobar islands
Far away from all continents, washed by Indian ocean, it was fairly called “Untouched Paradise” includes 572 islands, inhabited less the half of them.
Turquoise water, coral reefs, pure sand, huge trunks and crowns of rainforest gives a shadow at noon. There is no killing heat of the continent, hindi speaking islanders are relaxed and not at all tourist orientated, uncertain schedule of ferries and absence of phone or internet signal – makes the experience unique and unforgettable.
I was not sure that I would have a time to sketch, I had no materials taken purposely, all sketches done with 6 colour markers what kids took with them.
